High School and Community College Competition

Walsh College is challenging high school and community college students to think outside the box by participating in the third annual Walsh College Blackstone LaunchPad Make it Better Competition.

With a Friday, February 28 deadline looming, the competition asks individuals to describe in 1,000 words or less, how they would redesign an existing product or service, or develop a new one to help improve the quality of people’s lives or make the state of Michigan or their community a better place to live.

Ten cash prizes, including two $500 awards will be presented, along with Apple® gift cards.

Competition applications are still available and may be obtained by contacting Diane Fisher at 248-823-1670, or by visiting http://www.walshcollege.edu/blackstonelaunchpad. Entries must be received by 5 p.m. Friday, February 28, 2014. Winners will be announced in April.
